DD2 is 13mths and has since about 10.5mths settled into the following sleeping habits.
at night bed 7/730pm
morning up at 8am
nap time 1230/1pm for 2.5/3hrs.
4pm is my cut off for afternoon nap, i always wake her by 4 if she's not already up so she'll be tired enough for bedtime at night.

DS has just recently turned one & he is also a PITA to even just be put down for one nap. He also used to do naps at 9am & then 2pm but then 2pm one kept getting later & later until it was nonexistent. Then he started resisting the first nap, so I started stretching it later each day. Now lunch has been tweaked to start at 11.15ish & nap by 12. When he does go down for a nap (it's a struggle!) I usually get 2 hrs. For some reason he still won't go to bed until 7.30-8pm (up at 6am no matter what!). I think my ds's nap/bed struggle is due to a new development (walking). So developmental maybe?

@Smiley Face I'm hoping our bedtime shenanigans is due to a developmental phase too. DS is a PITA to get to bed at night as well. I can't decide if he is trying not to go to sleep or just can't settle down. It's taking an hour lately and he screams the house down if we try to leave the room : / nap time is better but sometimes the same for that too.

I also thkn it might actually have something to do with his development stage, hes just recently (in the last 2 weeks) started walking so maybe that has something to do with it too.
Im kinda hoping its just gona fix itself and ill stop tearing my hair out!!!

Well DS is teething.... which explains a lot! But he gets all crazy with his day naps just before the teeth break through, yet I can see the buggers there protruding from the gums, poor little guy...
He seems to have gone from 2 lengthy day naps to one short one in the mid-late morning and one big one in the arvo around 2.30-3pm for a couple of hours at least.
But of course, just when he goes down for his arvo nap and I head for the lounge and some shut-eye myself, someone pops by for a visit..... grrrrrr why do they always come in the afternoon??!

DS is nearly 12 months, his naps are a bit all over the place. Somedays he only has one nap (today was a 3 hour nap, yesterday was only 40 mins), somedays he has two (one at 10ish and another at 3ish). He goes to sleep anytime 6.30-8.30 and at the moment is waking 6/7ish. It's really odd as his routine is just totally out the window and we're just winging each day. Makes me nervous lol!
